While the first Iowa Highway 40 eventually was consumed by US Highway 218 and the number reassigned to a tiny spur, Highway 41 never did anything more than connect Malvern to the main road. The signs under the stop signs, instead of the generic "Cross Traffic", say that "U. S. 34" does not stop.

It's quite an involved intersection for a spur route, especially when the road north is gravel.

The three pictures above are some of my "Miracle Pictures" taken at the beginning of my Southern Iowa Road Trip in June 2003. They are so named because it was a miracle they turned out; my digital camera completely quit soon after.
